Day Six of the third round
For the first time in these six days of hostilities an Israeli civilian was seriously injured by a Kassam rocket that landed in Ashdod. The amazing “Iron Dome” missile defense system is not infallible and shrapnel hit the teen from twenty five yards away. We are praying for his life right now.
Another young man, a soldier on the border, was hit with mortar shrapnel a few days ago and is now out of critical condition, than God.
Curiously, this combat soldier comes from Itamar, a village in Samaria. It is one of the “settlements” that the Israeli Left would love to bulldoze and give to the terrorists of the Palestinian Authority, it is the one area that has been safe from terrorist rocket attacks during this latest round. There are Israelis that would transform it into another launching pad for rockets as they have done in their great wisdom in Gush Katif in Gaza.
Last night there were demonstrations in Tel Aviv. You guessed it. The “enlightened ones” have begun calling for a cessation of Israeli attacks in Gaza. It’s the same story all over again. Our enemies can always rely on their allies in Israel. It is all just too predictable.
Lenin called the fools in the West who defended Communism , his”useful idiots” They were mostly Jewish then as well…
Last night at eight oclock, Hamas made a dramatic announcement: “At nine o clock Tel Aviv (including the useful idiots) will be visited with a massive missile barrage. Residents have one hour to leave the city”
They did attack, but “the Iron Dome”, and the Shield of Abraham above it, intercepted them all, saving tens of thousands of lives.
They were returning the favor: We call each building that we target that houses terrorists or missiles, and they call to say they are going to wipe out a city – because it houses Jews, Evacuate. Fair is fair.
As night falls today, the Arabs of Hamastan have shot over one hundred missiles into Israel, as far north as the Galilee. I shudder to think that each one of them was meant to kill as many as my brothers and sisters – and children as possible.
I also shudder as I remember how Yitzchak Rabin assured us there never will be a missile fired from Gaza (so we can comfortably hand it over to Arafat) and Shimon Peres made light of the missile threat when he coined the scornful phrase, “Kassam Kashmam”.
Commentators tell us that Hamas is waiting for the big one – that is a strike that will kill a whole lot of Jews, children would be a particular delight. Then, the Arab mobs in Gaza, Ramallah, Jerusalem and in Haifa can finally celebrate as they did when our three boys were found murdered.
So far they are very frustrated and we hear the usual complaints from the world about how lopsided this conflict is. Almost two hundred “Palestinians” killed with over one thousand wounded and we have so very few causalities! Truly unfair!
We have some explaining to do don’t we !?
Thank God. Thank God.
As a very great man once said, “I prefer an unpopular Israel to a popular Auschwitz” He was so ,so right – about this too.
